Spotlight Interview with Gabrielle Peterson (aka Peanut Free Mama)

by admin


“I wanted to hear about real life scenarios instead of sterile advice from medical sites…I wanted the next mom who got the peanut allergy diagnosis to find me and know that it is going to be ok, really, truly it is.”

=&0=& Peanut Free Mama I’ve been blogging since 2002. I started a personal blog in 2002 at Gab’s House o’ Sass, then I started a blog for my daughter in 2004 which evolved into my current blog (where I devote most of my writing). =&1=& I manage the marketing department of a scientific publisher in Northern California. =&2=& When my daughter was diagnosed with a peanut allergy, I really felt that I absolutely had to live peanut and nut free as well. Partly as a sign of solidarity, but also I didn’t want to run the risk of causing a reaction by something I ate. So when I created a blog to document the journey we were on, “Peanut Free Mama” seemed like a natural choice. =&3=&
